Restart the iPhone: Most issues can be resolved by restarting your iPhone. The users need to hold the side power button and the volume down button simultaneously until they see just an Apple logo on the screen to restart their iPhones.
Quit the application: Sometimes just closing and opening the application again can resolve the issue. Users can double-tap the home button or swipe up from the bottom on the screen to launch the app switcher, depending on the iPhone model they have. Here they just have to swipe up the application they want to close, i.e. camera application. Open it again from the home screen and it should be working normally.
Emptying Excess Storage: Sometimes when the iPhone’s storage is about to finish, there can be issues. Users can offload this data on iCloud and free up some space on their iPhone to try and fix the issue.
Downgrade from iOS 14: If the problem continuously persists and there aren’t any fixes, users can opt to downgrade their iOS version. This is only a possibility if Apple is still digitally signing the earlier versions of iOS.
Disable NFC reader: It is reported that the newly added NFC reader can be hindering the camera as it uses the camera application for its actions too. Users can head over to the control center options in settings and remove the NFC reader from the control center to try to fix the issue.
Factory Data reset: The last and final option for any user would be to completely erase all files and factory reset their iPhone. They can back up their phones before doing this and restore their iPhone with that back up after resetting it.
